Full Text

It is our sad duty this week to announce the death of Mr. Francis Gibson, who for the past two years has been Foreman of The Independent Printing Plant, Grimsby. The deceased was a young man of unusual promise and his death at the early age of 26 years came as a sad blow, not only to his immediate relatives but to his employer and fellow employees, and to a host of friends and companions in Beamsville, Grimsby and surrounding country. Francis Gibson was the third son of Robert Gibson of Beamsville, and a nephew of the late Senator Gibson. He was born in Beamsville and lived there all his life. Two years ago he accepted the position of foreman in The Independent Office, Grimsby, and held that position up to the time of his death. He was ill just two weeks with influenza and pneumonia and died Sunday forenoon, Dec. 1st. He is survived by his father, mother, three brothers and one sister. The funeral took place on Tuesday afternoon to Mount Osborne Cemetery, Beamsville and was private.
